WORKSHOP EXTRAVAGANZA

16 DEC 2020 * 14:00 – 17:30 CET

What is the workshop extravaganza?

Virtual conferences are mostly passive learning. The workshop extravaganza is not!

We’re tired of watching presentations online. Instead, we believe that online learning is best done through interactive workshops and discussions with others. So our community of professional online Facilitators created the “Workshop Extravaganza” to offer you an awesome selection of remote workshops to take your online skills to the next level.

We promise that there will be no presentations, no lurkers, and no powerpoints. We offer experiential learning… and playful fun.

You will get:

  • Welcome and icebreaker in Kumospace, a virtual lounge where you can mix and mingle (check out the video on their homepage) or just sit by the piano and listen to music. It’s fun and easy to use – and something different than breakout rooms.
  • TWO 60-minute interactive, online workshops from an experienced, professional remote Facilitator.
  • Closing networking mixer.
  • A six-pack stomach from all the laughing. 😉 Ok, we can’t promise that. But if it helps, we’ll encourage you to do sit-ups during the breaks.

In these workshops you will get the chance to experience a wide range of remote collaboration skills, tools, techniques and tips to enable you to take your remote working skills to the next level.

Technical considerations

This is not a “webinar”! And there are no presentations. You will be engaging in live conversations with real human beings. Expect to be heard and seen throughout.

As with any remote meeting, each participant brings part of the meeting space with them. Please help yourself and others by ensuring you:

  • Call from a quiet place.
  • Have a stable broadband internet connection. Optimum bandwidth, i.e. internet speed on your side will be at least 10 Mbps download / upload. You can measure it using speedtest.net.
  • Use a headset.
  • Turn your video camera on.
  • To optimise your set-up, follow these suggestions on how to have a great video conferencing setup.
  • Join the Extravaganza on a laptop or desktop. The workshops are immersive and experiential; you will have a better experience if you can interact with a variety of tools easily.
